ODL equalization needs to be adjusted, nationwide, to consider EVERY click beyond eight hours as equitable OT, on or off assignment. There's "fair" and there's "right" and sometimes the two meet. This would be one of those instances.

/m5061 It kind of depends: how much OT is normally available? Is there an opportunity for those lower OT carriers to catch up with the higher OT carriers in this quarter if mgt takes assertive action in that direction? (ie, calling guys in on their SDOs, giving lower OT numbers guys more pivots, etc)? If its a small disparity, you can informally talk with the scheduling supervisor and say "Gee Boss, Carrier A is really racking up the OT- there are six other OTL guys who are going to need to be equalized. How's that looking?" Make a note of the time and date of the discussion for your records. If its a large disparity, with no hope of adjustment before the end of the quarter, let mgt know in writing that the Union is alert to the disparity and will be filing a grievance to see that the OT is equalized in the next quarter. Some offices track it week to week. We had a daily posting in my office so the Union could keep an eye on any one guy's numbers creeping up extravagantly.

My husband is a postal carrier (driver) and he has many physical problems (torn labrum in shoulder, hips are riddled with arthritis and may have to get hip replacements). He's been in soo much pain and this week doctor put him on light duty. Today, his supervisor gave him that they don't have work for him and not to come back to work on Monday --he will need to call in? Please can you help with our next steps? If he keeps working, he will probably become disabled. Can you tell us what to do or does he have any options within the post office?

/m5057 The steward should bring the disparity to the attention of the scheduling supervisor. That puts the Union on the higher ground. "See, we told them in plenty of time for them to equalize and they continued to fail at proper scheduling!" Then you can grieve it with a clear conscience and a better argument. ;-)

Question on ODL equalization- two carriers on the large ODL, the junior carrier is on pace to have triple the OT of the senior carrier on ODL. Must the senior carrier advise supervisors than it is unequal before the end of the quarter to give a chance to equalize? If the senior carrier waits and files at end of quarter is a cease and decist possible or is it always a pay out? Any advice is appreciated.

Learned today the "past practice" is a B Team decision. Need a copy. Post it. Problem solved. Anymore questions?

egark/m5054-thanks, not what I wanted but it is what it is. Can this past practice be part of a local? Can it be attached at any time? Thanks again.

Old22 /m5053 - there is no such written rule, so you won't find it. Sounds like a past practice.

Opinions or rules wanted please. So here's the deal. At our station in our city, if we want our day off, Tuesday, after the upcoming holiday, Monday, we have to block or put in for A/L on Saturday AND on Wednesday. In other words, to protect that precious day off after the holiday so we can keep our plans with our families, we have to spend A/L to safeguard the day off and the holiday too. So, now that you get the picture, where is the rule for this. I looked at our local, closely, don't see it but doesn't mean it can't be local right? Just not seeing it. Is this a past practice rule so to speak or is it somewhere else. Also, if it is a rule then how many hours have to be used? 9? 10? 12? 16? Thanks in advance for the opinions and/or help.

sunflower /m5042 Try to remember which address you delivered it to and go there tomorrow and see if they have the letter or the green receipt and turn it in tomorrow if they do.

pabak /m5046 I think you should clarify to sunflower if your response "most definitely!" is your answer to question number 1 "should I tell my supervisor?" or number 2 "will I be fired?"

5049.. Is that because they want you on waiting for mail time not office time?? There food numbers look bad if your on office time casing DPS. They can justify waiting for mail time!
